Comprehensive overview of human rights and education

09.12.2011
German Education Server and “Education Worldwide“ present an up-to-date dossier

An up-to-date dossier of the German Education Server and its partner ”Education Worldwide” delivers manifold information on the human right to education as well as human rights issues in education: On December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was published.

Subject to a co-operation between the German Education Server and “Education Worldwide”, this dossier is offered in German and English. The German Education Server is the central gateway to education information on the Internet. This joint service of the federal government and the Länder states is coordinated at the German Institute for International Educational Research (DIPF).

“Education worldwide”, a gateway to educational information from abroad, is also managed by the DIPF; this service is part of the association of portals hosted by the German Education Server.

The dossier focuses on the human right to basic education, particularly in times of crisis, and renders international sources such as the brochure “UNESCO and education. Everyone has the right to education“ accessible.

Moreover, the dossier links to manifold information offerings in the field of integrating human rights into education and learning. For instance, this includes a teacher compendium by “Human Rights Education Associates“, a non-governmental organization that acts as a network in human rights education.

The DIPF is a member of the Leibniz Association, which currently counts 87 research institutes and science infrastructure institutions, as well as two associated members. Research in the Leibniz Association covers a broad scope, reaching from the natural sciences, engineering and environmental sciences to economics-, social and space science and the humanities. Leibniz institutes strategically and thematically work on issues that are relevant to society as a whole. Hence, Leibniz institutes are jointly funded by the federal government and the Länder states.

Im Focus: BAM@Hannover Messe: innovative 3D printing method for space flight

At the Hannover Messe 2018, the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM) will show how, in the future, astronauts could produce their own tools or spare parts in zero gravity using 3D printing. This will reduce, weight and transport costs for space missions. Visitors can experience the innovative additive manufacturing process live at the fair.

Powder-based additive manufacturing in zero gravity is the name of the project in which a component is produced by applying metallic powder layers and then...

Im Focus: Molecules Brilliantly Illuminated

Physicists at the Laboratory for Attosecond Physics, which is jointly run by Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität and the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, have developed a high-power laser system that generates ultrashort pulses of light covering a large share of the mid-infrared spectrum. The researchers envisage a wide range of applications for the technology – in the early diagnosis of cancer, for instance.

Molecules are the building blocks of life. Like all other organisms, we are made of them. They control our biorhythm, and they can also reflect our state of...

Im Focus: Spider silk key to new bone-fixing composite

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.

Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.

Im Focus: Writing and deleting magnets with lasers

Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.

Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...

Im Focus: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
